Men's golf preview: Rams head to Provo for Cougar Classic

April 24, 2013

Next On the Tee

Colorado State, coming off a strange outing at the Cowboy Classic, will look to rebound from a 33 over-par finish and contend at the upcoming Cougar Classic.  Colorado State finished second in the event last year, as well as winning the Cougar Classic in 2011. 
Head Coach Christian Newton understands his team's recent success in Provo, and hopes to see it continue beginning Friday.
"The course is very similiar to what we see in Fort Collins, climate and altitde wise," said Coach Newton.  "I look for us to have a great week."
Sophomore Cameron Harrell participated in the event last year, where his 219 (+3) was good for a share of 17th place.  Harrell believes the time spent practicing will pay off this weekend. 
"We had a lot of great individual work these past couple weeks," said Harrell.  Our focus was a lot on the short game and wedges."

The Course

Riverside Country Club is located in the heart of Provo, and was opened in 1962.  The par-72, 7,142 yard club was designed by legendary golf course architect William Bell.

The Field

The Rams (69), will be gearing up to compete against Air Force (123), Boise State (178), BYU (39), Southern Utah (147), St. Mary’s (24), Utah State (200), Weber State (193) and Wyoming (174)
